many states that were trying to do a voter suppression with the idea laws, now we have won the most of that. now we have to be careful that the accurate count is given. everybody in the campaign has to be ready for recounting. if it goes to the supreme court, but we have to go there. host: are you still there? caller: it must be fair. host: from our twitter page -- steve is joining us from virginia on the republican line. caller: there is no such thing as a voter suppression, that is just silly. there is a voter fraud as was revealed by james keene where he recorded the son of jim moran telling somebody how to commit of voter fraud. there are lots of dead people that are registered. that was the purpose of this to get the dead people off of the voter rolls. the process is going forward in virginia. everybody who registers in virginia gets a voter i.d.. it is a responsibility. a lot of people did not want to have anything to do with responsibility. host: thank you for the call. eight romney ryan white house, it could happen. -- a romney-biden white house, it could happen. the magic n

reproduction. it's about the economy, that it's about race. when we think about jim crow laws, it was all about not allowing people of two different races to reproduce. i hadn't quite put it all together until i heard you say that, so i don't want other folks to misses that. and yet surprisingly the gender gap is less extreme than i might think it would be given these circumstances. is it -- when i look at the numbers, it says to me, yes, there's a gender gap, but it's still being driven primarily by women of color and by young women. so what's going on not just with the extremes of the republican party, but with women who hear this and i'm like, yeah, i'm town with them. what is that some. >> the conventional wisdom is when the republicans say these extreme things, those women will be turned off and vote if democrats. i don't think that's necessarily the case. it's not that they don't reject what is being said, because they do. but at the same time sometimes if you're independent and you are dead on the in middle, it's because you're turned off by booth pa both party. so democrats have to reme

pensions for one job our investigation so outraged politicians in springfield that they passed a law to stop it. they go on leave from the city and then base their pensions on their much higher union salary that pension reform had rare bipartisan support the teachers' union and other union leaders now say the law went too far. jesse sharkey is the no. 2 guy with the chicago teachers union. what's wrong with it is a couple of things, number one he points to this library assistant whose pension could be cut by more than half under the new law when she took a leave of absence from the city to work for the union her salary doubled she then not only got her city pension but a second retirement deal for reunion work. house minority leader tom cross sponsored the bill to stop what the library assistant and dozens of other union workers had been doing. she is still going to have a pension that she is entitled to as the library at she's just not getting that second pension working for the teachers' union. this begs the question if they build and received bipartisan support makes a very small
on that issue. host: neil levesque, about the recount laws in the state of new hampshire. is it possible that there could be a recount in this state and what are the rules for that? guest: we have specific rules for the state. we have a fine secretary of state, bill gardner, quite experienced in this. he's the person who has been the keeper of the flame for the new hampshire primary. we had a famous account here in the late '70's with senator john durken who recently passed away. frankly, i don't see it coming down to that. we will see what happens on tuesday. i think other states may be more likely to have a recount and new hampshire. host: do you have voter id laws? guest: yes, and there's some controversy. the legislature passed a voter -- a new voter law that required people to swear that if there were going to vote in a certain town that they would pay their taxes and their registration fees for their cars in that town, etc. this was appealed and the state supreme court has put that on hold. right now some of our voters are slightly confused about those issues going into tuesday. ho

rate of any country in the world. 2.3 million people. half of what we spend on law enforcement, the court and the prisons is drug related, and to what end. look, this is not about advocating drug use. 50% of kids graduating from high school have smoked marijuana. that's an issue that belongs with families, not in the criminal justice system. [applause] >> anybody have any rebuttal? >> i have to make my statements first, and then my rebuttal. so as a medical doctor previously in clinical practice for about 25 years, i can say with a real understanding of the science of the health impact, that marijuana is it a substance that is dangerous because it's illegal. it is not illegal on account of being dangerous. because it's not dangerous at all. [applause] it is well known that the impacts of marijuana are dangerous because of the illegal drug trade from marijuana drug prohibition. so the most important thing we can do to get rid of the health problems associated with marijuana is to legalize it. and on day one, on day one a president, if she wanted to, could entrust the d.e.a. to o
? they passed a law to change the system. we say, here are the people who qualify and the yget the loans at a lower interest rate. every student in the country who gets one of these loans will have the right to pay it back as a low, fixed percent of their income for 20 years. now, think about this. what that means is, nobody ever has to drop out of college because theyr'e scared of b orrowing more money. if you get out and want to teach in a small town in rural ohio -- you can do it anyway. what you have to pay will be determined by what you're making. not the other way around. and believe it or not, here's the kicker. this, over 10 years, costs you $60 billion less than the old system. so -- the president and the congress allocated that to increasing pell grands every year for a decade and to maintaining the tuition tax credit to pay the way through college. this is unbelievable. now, here's what you need to know. even the more moderate immage of governor romney cannot obscure the fact he has committed to repealing that law. he wants to give -- i'm telling you. idiology over evidence. t
a yes in washington state, a yes in maine will make marriage equality the law of the land. >> in those three states. >> bill: right. in minnesota a yes would put it in the constitution banning it. >> right. >> bill: so we want a yes vote in maryland, maine, and washington, and a no vote in minnesota. >> right. the polling vote looks positive in all of the forward-leaning states. maine, maryland, and washington. it looks possible in every one of those states -- and as i mentioned last time the caveat is people don't want to tell pollsters on the phone that they are against marriage equality. >> bill: uh-huh. >> but i think we're poised to win maybe one of these -- at least one of these, and potentially more, and it would be historic just to win one. >> bill: yeah. has president obama helped the movement? >> yeah, there's no doubt in my mind that him coming out in support of same-sex marriage on may 9th of this year, made a huge difference. at that point people have to grapple with, wait a second this guy wasn't for it -- well he was for it, then he wasn't for it a
.d. issue. i am surprised that the issue has not been brought up on the voter i.d. law. my view of it is you need an i.d. for everything. opening a bank account, cashing checks. i think the voter i.d. deal covers a lot of programs where a lot of fraud and abuse comes in there. i was curious as to why it hasn't been addressed. there is a lot of defense that i think the republican campaign might have done it to squash any allegations of voter suppression. guest: i think he is absolutely right been very we know from based polling in ohio that well over 75% of voters support voter identification law in ohio. however we do have identification requirements in ohio to indict you have to show either a driver's license, put down the last four digits of your social security number, or you have to show a utility bill showing your address. we do have a identification requirements in ohio. we do not have voter identification requirements but i think overall the legislature has felt it has not been necessary in ohio. we do have pre-registration in ohio. you have to be a resident for 30 days in ohio in whi
of the roadness has been extraordinary. >> right. >> you're right. a big law on health care and not much else. but that was a big thing. >> jonathan chaits, i'm going to echo him but not quote from him. if you look on facebook, jonathan endorsed an argument really took off. i think that's partly because people who do lean one way or in a place now where they're paying attention and want to hear the right argument. i dodge think mayor bloomberg is going to persuade a lot of people in the close here, but for people leaning towards obama it is mobilizing. that is really the point at this phase in an election. i mean we talked about jay-z being on obama's side and to quote jay-z, we are in a love me or leave me alone moment in a mobilizing phase. >> do you think we're in that moment or did you just want to drop jay-z? >> i really do. what i mean is, i really don't believe endorsements, "new york times" endorsed barack obama, i don't think that people are waking up in the morning reading that and going now i'm going to vote. but i do think -- >> given -- >> wait. but just to finish the point i don
're a nation of law, we'll obey the law. i think romney will win 53% 47%. very unlikely that he can win popular vote and not carry the electoral vote. carville has a rule, incumbents get the last poll. ohio, obama would lose 51%, 49%. you go around the country. lots of states obama is at 48%, 49% and james carville always said, you never get if you're the incumbent, you never get a break. >> let's look at the closing arguments from president obama. he was in new hampshire yesterday taking aim at romney's record in massachusetts. >> once he took office, he pushed through a tax cut that overwhelming benefited 278 of the wealthiest families in the state, and then he raised taxes and fees on middle-class families. to the tune of $750 million. does that sound familiar to you? >> his argument of course exactly what governor romney is going to do if he's president. >> wait a second, the fact is barack obama would trade job creation of romney as governor in a hartley beat. he would trade of massachusetts under romney in a heartbeat. romney worked with a democratic legislation la sure. you look at romne
, is on the better loss for adoption. -- better laws for adoption. we should encourage adoption in the united states of america with federal laws here in the state capital. and taxpayer funding of abortion -- our tax dollars should be used to fund medicare, and social security. and funding the military. they should not be used to fund abortions. sherrod brown is an extremist on the issue and supports using your tax dollars to fund abortion. we should not support abortions in the ninth month of pregnancy. but sheriff brown has an extremist position. can you explain to the people watching at home tonight, why do you support abortion in the ninth month of pregnancy. >> i have never heard anyone say that to me, judge. unlike judge mandel, -- josh. unlike josh mandel, my opponent has an extreme position and signed the exceptions for anything, rape and incest. i trust women to make decisions about their own health care. there are tens of thousands of women who get pregnant from rapes every year. it may not be something we want to acknowledged in the end, i will trust of high women to make -- i will trust
? are their pockets for the u.s. takes law enforcement? >> there are exceptions. there are still exceptions. one reason let me now have concluded as the frame that is being used by policymakers, the frame is not about investing. it is about capital expenditures when should be about operating expenditures. the frame is about government as believed. we're trying to work with our customers in those cities where we see receptive ears a meeting the leaders are hungry for really profound changes in the way the city operates. some of these are not the usual suspects. chattanooga, not the city on because you would expect on the left bank or otherwise. they decided to make the investment in building out broadband to every building in the city. piercing the economic benefits. it is not just the city government. it was their other vehicles. they were being smart. connecting the dots are hard. we're trying to break down the silo which tends to be the frame for which they think about it rather than looking across all of the boundaries to say what is it that is going to force collaboration and open the system
nobody speaks about the intelligence blunder the republicans did that put us in a war with raq, law 2000 american soldiers, and their answer was they had poor intelligence. secondly, my question is, why should anybody believe that governor romney would be good at creating jobs what he was 48 in job guest: well, i'll take the question first. governor romney in the middle oh f a tough economy created almost 50,000 new jobs in massachusetts. let's remember. >> on "washington journal" tomorrow morning we'll look at virge. >> now we'll go to jacksonville florida where mitt romney is to speak shortly. he is with jeb bush. >> you ready to take back the white house? i thought you might be. how did you enjoy five for fighting? he's a really good guy. did you enjoy his song "freedom never cries"? this is an important election. this an election about what the future of america is going to be. is our future going to be more debt and more regulation and more taxes? sor our future going to be in less taxes, less regulations and. nibble mitt romney. he's the right candidate at the right time to be
